The new Stampin’ Blends are on their way.
You can purchase them on November 1st. I am SOOO excited for you to get your hands on them.
In the video below I cover some questions and topics regarding the new Stampin’ Blends. Please feel free to leave me a comment here or on my You Tube channel with any questions you might have or any requests of what you might like me to do with them.
My excitement is almost not containable people! I am not gonna lie. I love these markers and I LOVE coloring. Stampin’ UP! made my year by releasing these.
FAQ regarding Stampin’ Blends:
Q) Are these markers the same as Blendabilities?
A) Yes and No. These are alcohol based markers. However they have been reconfigured and are MUCH better than the previous product released. I love them and would highly recommend them to anyone wanting to start learning how to use alcohol markers for card making.
Q) Are these the same kind of markers as Copic markers?
A) Yes. They are an alcohol based marker. Just like Copics, Spectrum Noir and several others on the market.
Q) Why would I buy these instead of buying Copics?
A) The price point on these markers is much lower than Copic markers. I highly recommend them for someone that is considering trying it out but doesn’t want the commitment of a large investment. Or the time involved in learning how to use Copic markers.
Q) What kind of paper should I use?
A) The very best paper for any alcohol based marker is a paper designed specifically for that. I love using Crafters Companion Spectrum Noir card stock. However, with that said I have test the Stampin’ Blends on Whisper White Thick card stock and you do get a nice blend. The difference is marginal. I would NOT recommend using an inexpensive card stock, like Walmart or Michaels brands. They will not give you nice stamped images or blended coloring.
Q) Are Stampin’ Blends refillable?
A) No. They are not. Their price point is such that purchasing a new marker is less expensive than buying a refill. You can purchase the markers individually.
Q) Can I buy the entire set of Stampin’ Blends?
A) YES. There is an option to purchase the entire set. CLICK HERE (link available after Nov 1st)
Q) When will the Stampin’ Blends be available to purchase?
A) Nov 1, 2017

So glad I found your video. I love the markers. I really enjoy playing around with the colors. I found your video very helpful. My question is how do you stop them from bleeding .
If they are bleeding it’s because you are putting too much ink on the card stock. Some card stocks will bleed worse than others. The Spectrum Noir Crafters Companion card stock tends to not bleed as much as the Whisper White. I hate to say that but it’s the truth. The more layers of color you put down the higher your chance of bleeding. Also, using a really light hand when you are coloring helps a lot.
